Though Blizzard has thwarted most of my preparation efforts this time around, I still have some preparations in place. 1) I had lots of tailoring / enchanting twink mats. Then Blizzard axed the leveling ranges for BC recipes so I will only be able to make use of half of my mats. 2) I had max honor and BG tokens. Then Blizzard announced they were wiping honor and tokens, so I spent them. Then Blizzard announced they changed their mind. So that month of grinding was a waste. 3) But I still have my 30,000 gold. At this rate I am half expecting them to wipe all gold before WotLK. So I'm ready to go. My collector's edition of WotLK is preordered at my local Game Stop.
